FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) — Police have arrested a 28-year-old man suspected of killing his girlfriend's mother in Fort Dodge.

Mark Russell, of Fort Dodge, is charged with first-degree murder, police said. Webster County court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for Russell.

He was arrested after police were called to a home around 9:15 a.m. Monday. Officers dispatched to check on a domestic dispute there found the 45-year-old woman unresponsive. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police identified her Tuesday as Angela McLeod.

“The preliminary investigation into this incident suggests that an altercation broke out between the male and female,” a police news release said. “At some point, the male subject grabbed an object from inside the residence, using it as a weapon, striking the female.”
